To solve the browser-crash problem, you may use a download manager.

Another benefit would be that you can then pause the download (IA servers supports the HTTP ‘Range’ header needed for that†), see if you have found what you are searching for, and if not found it, resume the download. You can open the partly downloaded file in a web-browser too. If the browser crashes, you should open the html file in a simple text editor like Notepad (on Windows). (On Linux, one would obviously use grep to search.)

† IA servers support the ‘bytes-’ format in the HTTP ‘Range’ header (needed to resume the download), but I have not been successful when trying ‘bytes1-bytes2’ format (when you want only some part in the middle of a webpage).

Hello aibek,

Left to my own devices, DN manager is what I partly voyage to seek some comfort in maintaining results. As you can imagine, not the most elegant solution.

If someone would finds this useful at later date, I’ve tried every browser (Mac/PC) and although Mozzilla related, Seamonkey remains the most stabile while enduring, even the most stringent overload possible. The worst you will face with Seamonkey is "Unresponsive script’ warning, but then, just let him continue, and you will get your results.

I hope someone from WM staff would share some light firsthand to my original question and search switches.

regards

Try browsing the pages after disabling JavaScript. That should take care of the ‘unresponsive script’ problem. (Because there would be no scripts anymore.)

Indeed I do, "No Script" is essential add-on - on each browser. I've mention that, for those who have no habit or understanding of JS blocking.
